The exhausting business of being a cat.
How terribly exhausting it must be
to be a cat, reclining on a lawn,
lying sprawled out, yet quite elegantly,
while holding all humanity to scorn.
The task of scattiness behind the hedge,
demanding all the frisson of surprise,
or sitting stately on the window ledge
demands more skill than humans realise.
How utterly frustrating it must be
to be always the wrong side of a door!
To exit, or to yawn nonchalantly,
is such a hard decision, furthermore.
While to a layman's eyes it seems like fun,
a cat's life is a most exhausting one.

|Quite creative and humorous. Many years ago, a psychology professor at the University of Wisconsin observed the behavior of cats in a large enclosure. What he found out was startling! After dark, cats have a very vigorous sex life, revealed by films he took of his cats at night.
No wonder they lie around all day acting like the world is just too much to get up and face! ;-)

"The Rum Tum Tugger is a curious cat
And there isn't any need for you to doubt it
For he will do as he did, do
And there's no doing anything about it"
-T.S. Eliot/A.L.Weber, Cats.
Thank you Sara, for sharing your words of
the felix-feline-connection. Meow.

|Mine ran away and was gone four days. He returned as quietly as he left but with part of his ear missing. He didn't mention what happened, and I didn't ask. But was I relieved!|
